In Forest Hills, Memories of Shanghai and Spy C Cuisine, both found on Austin Street, were added this year.

Turkish cuisine is delicious and I actually believe that all the Balkan region has been strongly influenced by the Ottoman/Turkish cuisine.

I live in Astoria and always hear how good the food is, well this is a talltale. The food is almost always disappointing, with one exception, and that would be Mars. This food is good enough to make you moan (audibly moan).
